Stossel: Trump's Deregulation

President Trump has cut a lot of regulations—but increased some others. --------- Subscribe to our YouTube channel: http://youtube.com/reasontv Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Reason.Magazine.

Go to reason.com for a point of view you won't get from legacy media and old left-right opinion magazines. --------- President Donald Trump says he's "undertaken a historic effort to massively reduce job-killing regulations."  People attack him for it. According to The Young Turks, Trump's deregulation "singlehandedly led the world down a dark path."   The left-wing Economic Policy Institute think tank claims "workers' health, safety, and pay are among the casualties." But deregulation creates wealth.  "Trump sent a message to business: 'We're not going to crush you.' And that's caused growth," Stossel says to Grover Norquist—who runs Americans for Tax Reform, which fights for lower taxes and fewer rules. "That was the beginning of a recovery," Norquist responds. The stock market has risen by about a third since Trump was elected. Trump has cut hundreds of regulations, including an EPA rule about "waters of the United States" that the agency said gave them power to regulate virtually everyone's land.  The EPA was regulating "little trickles, and the kind of ponds that spring up when it rains a lot one night," says Norquist. "They were using it as land control." Stossel reported how Jill and Jack Baron, in Idaho, were encouraged by state officials to unclog a drainage ditch—but when they did so, federal officials went after them in court, fining them thousands of dollars a day. Deregulation saved the Barons, who now have use of their land again. "We have our land back! Without the change in the White House and the EPA nothing would have changed," Jill Baron writes. Trump also repealed Obama's new "CAFE" standards—meant to force car makers to produce more fuel-efficient cars. The Obama administration wanted all car makers' fleets to get an average of 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025. The Trump administration scrapped that, although California may keep the tougher rules. Trump also ended the previous administration's "net neutrality" rules. Democrats predicted doom. One Federal Communications Commission official said Trump was "handing the keys to the internet over to a handful of multi-billion-dollar corporations." Opponents feared that those corporations would jack up prices or slow some website speeds. None of that's happened, Stossel and Norquist note. Another regulation Trump cancelled would have treated franchise companies like McDonalds as one single business.   Norquist explains why the Obama administration wanted that: "The trial lawyers want to be able to sue all of McDonald's, not just the local McDonald's, if [someone] spills coffee on themselves. And the labor unions wanted to unionize all of McDonald's, not just the one store…that would have been a disaster. That was ended." But sometimes, Trump adds new regulations—he's mandated that government buy products made in America, and he's added tariffs on lots of imports.  "Trump is a protectionist in many ways, and tariffs are taxes and…regulations on consumers," Norquist says.  "The good news is, the vast majority of the regulatory acts by a factor of many have been deregulatory and they have been tremendously helpful," Norquist says. "He's done a great deal more than anybody in recent history…maybe even more than Reagan did."  By some measures, he did.  Trump claims to have cut 22 rules for every new regulation. He exaggerates, as usual. The real number is about five regulations repealed for every new one passed, according to the Competitive Enterprise Institute.  Still, whether it's 5 or 22, It's good whenever excessive regulations are cut. Regulations take our time, opportunity, and our freedom.

 ‘One Child Nation’ Exposes the Tragic Consequences of Chinese Population Control.

Published on Aug 16, 2019

Documentary filmmaker Nanfu Wang reveals the history and horror of China’s one-child policy.

Imposed in 1979, China's one-child policy devastated generations of families. Countless children were abducted or killed, women were subjected to forced abortions and sterilizations, and millions of girls disappeared before the Communist Party finally ended the policy in 2015. In the documentary One Child Nation, out now in select theaters and later this year on Amazon, director Nanfu Wang revisits her experience growing up in rural China in the late 1980s and '90s. The film is both a deeply personal portrait of family life under the one-child regime and a searing exposé of its draconian horrors. One Child Nation won the Grand Jury Prize at this year's Sundance Film Festival and has earned rave reviews from critics. In it, Wang interviews both the victims and the officials responsible for enforcing the one-child policy, revealing the true devastation it wrought on all Chinese citizens, including her own family. Wang sat down with Reason's Justin Monticello to go behind the scenes and delve deeper into some of the revelations contained in her highly-anticipated film.

Stossel: Save Lives, Sell Organs.

Critics say organ sales would hurt the poor. In fact, it would save lives. --------- Subscribe to our YouTube channel: http://youtube.com/reasontv Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Reason.Magazine. Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/reason Subscribe to our podcast at iTunes: https://goo.gl/az3a7a Reason is the planet's leading source of news, politics, and culture from a libertarian perspective. Go to reason.com for a point of view you won't get from legacy media and old left-right opinion magazines. --------- More than 100,000 Americans are waiting for someone to donate an organ. Many will die waiting. Some people turn to the black market because there aren't enough organs available legally. A single organ can sell for up to $200,000. One solution to the problem would be to legalize buying and selling organs. Philosophy professor Samuel Kerstein tells John Stossel this is a bad idea: "Poor people are going to be hurt! Body parts to be put into Americans will come from poor countries!" Stossel argues that legalization would make organ transplants safer and bring prices down. People legally sell blood, plasma, sperm, eggs, bone marrow. Why not a kidney? Law professor Lloyd Cohen agrees: "Financial incentives work for everything. They work for food, they work for housing, they work for clothing." He sneers at the arguments in support of banning sales. "Deep moralisms about the dignity of human life being degraded by commercialism. It's all crap." 24 years ago, Cohen went on 60 Minutes to argue that people should be allowed to sell an organ. Now he needs a kidney himself. He has become one of the growing number of Americans waiting for one. But because no one is allowed to buy or sell a kidney, says Cohen, "organs that could restore people to health and extend life are instead being buried and burned."

Is Money Speech? Free Speech Rules (Episode 5)

Published on Jul 31, 2019

Can the government restrict people's ability to spend money on speech? Here are the Four Rules of Free Speech and Money. ---------- Subscribe to our YouTube channel: http://youtube.com/reasontv Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Reason.Magaz... Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/reason Subscribe to our podcast at Apple Podcasts: https://goo.gl/az3a7a Reason is the planet's leading source of news, politics, and culture from a libertarian perspective. Go to reason.com for a point of view you won't get from legacy media and old left-right opinion magazines. ---------- Rule 1: Generally, your right to speak includes the right to spend money to speak. The government can't limit, for instance, a newspaper's budget, even if it thinks newspapers have too much influence over elections and politicians. The government can't stop the National Rifle Association or the Sierra Club from spending money to praise the candidates they like,and it can't limit what other Americans spend, either. Sometimes people frame the question as "Is money speech?" But that's not right. Here's an analogy: The Sixth Amendment protects criminal defendants' right to hire a lawyer. Say the government said, "You can hire any lawyer you like, but you can't pay them more than $1000" (It would be unfair, the theory goes, for rich people to hire better lawyers than poor people can.) That restriction would violate the Sixth Amendment—but not because "money is a lawyer." but because the right to a lawyer includes the right to spend money on a lawyer. The same is true for most other rights. The Supreme Court has held that people have a right to send their children to private school. If the government were to say, "you can't spend more than $1000 per year on private schooling," that would violate the right to educate your children; but again, not because "money is an education," but because the right to educate your children includes the right to spend money on schooling. Justice Breyer, who's actually open to substantial restrictions on spending money for speech, put this well: "A decision to contribute money to a campaign is a matter of First Amendment concern—not because money is speech (it is not); but because it enables speech." So restrictions on pending money to speak, the Supreme Court has held, are restrictions on speech, and are thus generally unconstitutional. Rule #2: The government can, though, limit direct contributions to candidates, as opposed to just spending money to speak about candidates. In 1976, for instance, the Supreme Court upheld a cap on contributions to federal candidates. The Court has also upheld even lower caps (as low as $250) for state and local candidates. Part of the reasoning behind that conclusion is that contribution restrictions limit speech less than expenditure restrictions, precisely because restrictions on contributions to candidates still leave people free to say whatever they like independently of the candidate. Rule #3: The government may also bar nonprofit organizations from spending tax-deductible contributions on political campaigning. The charitable tax deduction is viewed as a sort of a subsidy. Say you're in the 40% tax bracket; if you give $1000 to a charity, you save $400 in taxes. That contribution is thus equivalent to your paying $600 non-tax-exempt to the charity, and the government forking over the $400. Based on this subsidy theory, the Supreme Court has held that the government may attach conditions to this tax deduction. One such condition is that groups (whether religious or secular) that collect tax-deductible money aren't supposed to use it to endorse or oppose political candidates. If they want to engage in such speech, they can—just with money they get without the tax exemption. That's why many groups, such as the ACLU, the NRA, the Sierra Club, actually have two related groups—a so-called "501(c)(3)" group that collects tax-deductible donations and can't use them for political campaigning, and a "501(c)(4)" group that collects non-tax-deductible donations that it can use for politics. Rule #4: The government may completely bar people who aren't citizens or lawful permanent residents from spending money to advocate for or against candidates. Though non-citizens present in the U.S. generally have broad First Amendment rights, a federal court held that these rights can be limited when it comes to spending even small sums of money related to elections. The Supreme Court upheld that decision, though the Justices didn't issue a written opinion.
